HS Health Screenings - Sep. 6th

2018-19  Chadron Public Schools
Health Screenings
Dear Parents/Guardians:
Hope this letter finds each of you and your families off to a great school year!
We are writing to let you know that the mandatory school health screenings will be held on September 6th and 7th.  
The schedule will be as follows:
September 6th morning- High School (10th - 11th grades)
September 6th afternoon - Intermediate School (3rd - 4th)
September 7th morning - Primary School (K - 2nd)
September 7th afternoon - Middle School (6th - 7th)
This is a routine school day so we will be pulling your child’s class for a short time to complete a hearing, dental,
vision and height, weight screening.  Blood pressure screening is an optional screening and will be done if
time allows.  A current physical is required for incoming Kindergarten and 7th grade students so they will not be
participating in the height, weight and BP portion.  Incoming Kindergarten students are required to have a current
vision exam, they will not be completing that portion at this time. These screenings are not only a requirement by
the State of Nebraska but also very important in early diagnosis of potential barriers in a student’s ability to learn
and grow!
CAPWN Dental will also be completing dental screenings and/or treatments for ALL grades who’s permission slips (sent home the beginning of the year) were filled out and returned.
If you do not want your children to participate in the free screenings, you will need to come to the school and
sign a waiver.  Due to the screenings being a state requirement, we will need you to provide the school with
documented results from your private providers for each area of screening by October 1, 2018.  
Please let us know if you have any questions.
Your School Nurses,
Abie Hyatt LPN, EMT-P
Jenni Pyle RN-BSN

Chadron HS Recieves NFS Grant for Sawmill

Woodmizer LT15GO Sawmill
Chadron High School is one of two Nebraska schools to receive a grant of approximately $11,500 of sawmill equipment sponsored by the Nebraska Forest Service - An Affiliate of the University of Nebraska - Lincoln. Ainsworth High School is the other Nebraska school selected as a recipient.

Project Purpose: North-Central and Northwest Nebraska are some of the state's most heavily-forested regions. However, there is such a shortage of forest industry and forest product manufacturing in the areas that severe wildfires have occurred as a result of lack of management and timber harvest. NFS is working with the local schools to get students involved in forestry education and wood products manufacturing through FFA, the industrial technology and agricultural programs in an effort to increase student interest in the resources available in their own backyard and jumpstart the development of forest-based small businesses and entrepreneurs.
Nyle L53 Kiln

Chadron and Ainsworth high schools will each receive a Woodmizer LT15GO sawmill with the optional log loader kit and a Nyle L53 wood kiln. Included in the grant is training provided by NFS.
